"A Scot owned bar that I frequent always sets a small pitcher of water next to a Scotch order. I asked about this and the bartender replied that a little water helps to "open up" the taste. So I tried the Scotch neat and then…"
"+1 on the Balvenie Doublewood - really fine scotch, even more so for the price. If you want something really special, try the Balvenie 21 year portwood is amazing.
With that said - I tend to prefer speyside scotches (honey/leather/vanilla/spice)…"
"My recommendation would be Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve.
You should be able to find it for around $50-$70 (It's $75 or so here in Canada).
An excellent bottle of scotch without breaking the bank too much.
Be sure to pop back in…"
"Agreed. Go out and try some first. I didn't like scotch until I tried some 18 year Caol Ila. It's extremely smoky...kinda tastes smoked. That very prominent smoky flavor somehow eased me into the scotch taste."

My general rule is that they need to be neat, single, legal, and preferably old enough to drink themselves.

If you must get Scotch, try Johnny Walker Black Label. Very smooth. Not too pricey.
Another alternative is a French…"
"If you don't drink a lot of Scotch you may find that the more expensive brands are awfully smokey tasting. Scotch is basically a whiskey which has had some ingredients dried over a peat fire, thus the smokey taste. Spending $50 to…"

"Sweet! Any recommendations for building a PDF / "opt-in magnet"? I've downloaded a free "10 Steps to blah blah blah" from a few sites. Just curious how those are normally generated (in what program, I mean).
Many of us non-medical persons assume that doctors look at the human body as just some neutral thing that they work on. That may not always be the case.Years ago I worked as a non-medical support person in a community health clinic, one where recent med school graduates would work for a while to help pay off their debt.

"Coming upon this thread of discussion late, but will share my thoughts as well. "The immutability of Gods moral law" - I'm confused how you saw this as a God given law? God's command was to Israel at that time to…"
